Jaco3011 posted a topic in Club and Show NewsHi guys Japanese H0m is a niche, so it's hard to find other people interested. Is there anyone else besides me?
Jaco3011 posted a topic in Layout BuildingI just wanted to share progress. All three modules are fully operational. There is fourth box, the longer type, waiting for tracks and wiring to be put onto. The shorter ones are 30cm long, the longer is 60cm. All are 30cm wide.
#12 vs #13
Jaco3011 posted a topic in Japanese: Other Gauges & ScalesHello I've just bought Tomix' TaKi1000 in 1/80 scale. I intend to convert it to narrow gauge, but it's my first Japanese model ever, so I can still choose between going with modelling into: >#13 aka JM (1/80 13mm gauge) >#12 aka H0m (1/87 12mm gauge) >non-standard 1/80 12mm gauge 13mm vs 12mm: 13mm is accurate for 1/80, 12mm is accurate for 1/87, but 12mm is way more available. Well, it is simply "available" compared to extremely rare and Japanese-only 13mm parts. 1/80 vs 1/87: 1/80 is exclusive to Japan, so I'd have to either scratch-build or order from Japan every little thing that's not part of nature. But 1/87 trains are more expensive and have less variety, not sure about eg. cars in 1/87. I'm not planning to go into Shinkansen soon, probably not at all, but in 1/80 Shinkansen would cause even more mess with gauges. Is there any regular group of #12 or #13 modellers in Europe?
